Boston, MA and Miami, FL – VIVE 2022 Conference – March 7, 2022 – Censinet, the leading provider of risk management solutions for healthcare, today announced significant product and partnership advances that address the unprecedented threats to healthcare providers and the organizations that serve them. Censinet is introducing both provider and vendor solutions through its Censinet RiskOps™ platform.
“We believe that industry collaboration among the healthcare ecosystem is the most effective way of reducing cybersecurity threats to patient safety and data,” stated Ed Gaudet, CEO and Founder of Censinet. “Our announcements at ViVE this week reflect the significant progress that Censinet customers – providers, vendors, and partners – are making towards eliminating as much cyber risk from their enterprises as possible.”
Censinet will demonstrate these new platform capabilities and discuss significant partnerships and initiatives in the ViVE Cybersecurity Pavilion at Booth 1012-16. Censinet executives, customers, and other healthcare risk professionals will be on hand to discuss how the Company and its partners are coming together to advance healthcare cybersecurity and risk management.

Censinet Introduces a Major Advancement in Healthcare Provider Cybersecurity: HICP
Over the past several years, Censinet has become the benchmark for healthcare cybersecurity risk management. Healthcare professionals and technology leaders created Censinet to enable a scalable method for identifying and managing risk specific to healthcare, thereby preventing data breaches, ransomware, and supply chain disruption. Trusted by leading healthcare providers, Censinet helps organizations address risk across their business, including vendors and third parties, patient data, medical records, research and IRB, medical devices, the supply chain, and more. Censinet works with IT, Security, Risk, and GRC teams within healthcare organizations of varying sizes, ranging from local clinics and regional hospitals to large healthcare systems, as well as critical third-party vendors and suppliers that support providers.
At ViVE, Censinet introduced a powerful extension to its Censinet RiskOps™ platform: support for healthcare provider assessments aligned with HHS 405(d) Health Industry Cybersecurity Practices (HICP). Censinet RiskOps for HICP is available now and deployed across a range of healthcare organizations. For more information, please visit censinet.com/hicp.
Censinet Elevates Risk Management and Cybersecurity for Healthcare Vendors
Last year, KLAS, a healthcare research and insights firm, selected Censinet as its healthcare risk management partner. Together, KLAS and Censinet created the breakthrough Cybersecurity Transparent program to help elevate the cybersecurity and risk management posture of the vendors who supply and support healthcare providers. This voluntary program recently exceeded its targeted milestone, with more than 200 products now achieving the Cybersecurity Transparent designation.
At ViVE 2020, KLAS and Censinet will recognize recipients of the prestigious achievement. Last night, at the Fontainebleau Hotel, both companies held a joint award ceremony to recognize both the companies and acknowledge the program’s success.

“Third-party partners play a major role in allowing providers to deliver innovative healthcare initiatives and programs,” stated Cormac Miller, Censinet President. “Healthcare innovation and cybersecurity need to be in lock-step; the current reality for many is that the process for demonstrating strong cyber controls is a significant tax on time and resources for providers and their partners. That’s why our work to create a more efficient mechanism with KLAS via the Cybersecurity Transparent initiative is so critical to our industry, and we’re honored that so many excellent companies have already joined us on this journey.”
